FAQs—BMW Floor Mats
- What are the advantages to using all-weather floor mats?
All-weather floor mats are designed for tougher protection against the elements, which include mud, dirt, moisture, and gunk. The pliable synthetic material of these mats makes them all the more reliable. With their taller outer walls, they can trap mud, dirt, and moisture better than others. Another good thing about these floor mats is that they're easier to maintain. You can just hose off the mud or spills. Because of their features and overall design, these floor mats can be used for any type of weather, whether it's dusty or humid outside or wet because of snow and rain.
- Is it practical to use carpet floor mats than the ones made of rubber? Aren't these floor mats easy to stain and difficult to clean?
These floor mats are built using crush-resistant materials. They're thicker than other floor mats and last longer. While rubber can be easy to clean, most carpet types are chemically treated to resist staining and soiling. They can be vacuum-cleaned. Special car carpet cleaner is also available. Car owners prefer them over rubber floor mats because of the more luxurious look and softer feel that they offer. They also come in different colors, which can easily improve the aesthetics of the interior or create a certain look. One isn't exactly better than the other. It still depends on your preference. Some look for mats that can better contain dirt. And though rubber mats may seem less delicate than the carpet types, they can also crack when dried out under the heat. Each material or type of mat offers its own set of benefits and some disadvantages.
- What's the main difference between an all-weather floor mat and an all-weather floor liner?
All-weather mats are made thick and heavy. These allow them to provide better protection and cushion. Thicker treads are used for mats, with taller outer lips to trap mud and dirt. All-weather floor liners, meanwhile, offer more surface area with a contoured design to match the floorboards. They can contain a greater volume of mud and moisture with their taller outer rims. Although they're thinner than mats, the liners are made using water-tight materials. Both can be cleaned off using a hose.
- What does the weight on carpet floor mats mean? I'm searching for a new BMW floor mat and found options with these numbers/ratings. Are heavier carpet floor mats better or not?
Carpet floor mats come in nylon weaves with different weights, from 32 oz. and 42 oz. to 48 oz. This refers to the weight per square yard of the nylon material. The heavier floor mats are naturally thicker and denser, and they're better because of their improved crush resistance. The weight, however, just refers to the carpet, not the linings, bottoms, or borders of the floor mats.
- What exactly are semi-custom floor mats? Do they fit all vehicles?
Semi-custom floor mats don't fit all vehicles. They're not designed for a specific make, model, and year of the vehicle, but they can be fitted with most, even with slightly varied floorboards. They can be fitted easily, but it's not a perfect fit as with custom mats.
